"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"The nineteenth century is interesting for many reasons, but one for sure is that it was a moment of pre-modernity- a moment when time was thought of in a very different way. The relationship people thought they had with the period in which they were living was very different from the one we have today. The difference is in the way we see each period in relation to the present, past, and future."
- Pierre Huyghe
